Do my references need to submit a paper copy of their reference?

Do you need documents from my current training?

Where do I send my application documents?
All documents must be uploaded to your online application (including unofficial transcripts). The reviewers look at the applications online and will only see those documents you uploaded. If your application is incomplete it will not be reviewed.
How do I "submit" my application?
There is no formal submit option. On January 23rd, your application will be checked to ensure that you have submitted all the required document (outstanding letters of reference are exceptions). If all the documents have been uploaded and are clear to read your application will be marked "Under Review" by the JCB and will be sent to the reviewers.
